There are some services for the person that you care for so that you can have a break, including:

  • personal care
  • day opportunities outside the home
  • providing replacement care at home – known as a ‘sitting service’
  • longer periods of respite care in a residential home
  • equipment and/or assistive technology – for example, telecare
  • home adaptations that may be available to make the home a safer and more accessible place to live.
  • supported housing for those with disabilities

There are some organisations that can help with this. Find out more about other services available.
